Unique Places to Stay in Newfoundland

From the moment you arrive, you’ll see that the province of Newfoundland is special. It’s only fitting that there are many special places to stay!

Newfoundland is known for its scenery and nature, so be sure to spend some time experiencing it, outside of the larger towns and cities.

Sometimes it may be appropriate to simply get a hotel room and stay there for an entire trip, but that’s certainly not the best approach to take in Newfoundland! There’s far more to see and experience.

It’s very common among residents, many of whom own cabins or cottages in wooded areas or near ponds, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Here you can have a campfire, fish, boat, hike, laugh, ride all terrain vehicles or just relax!

Cabins come in all shapes and sizes, some with beautiful finishes, others built with whatever building materials could be found. Some have electrical service and plumbing, others don’t! Be sure to stay in a cabin, such as this one for a proper Newfoundland experience.

Next up, The Lighthouse Inn! Being an island, Newfoundland has its share of lighthouses to warn ships of dangerous rocks and coastlines. While this one in Burlington is only a model, it’s one of the most special places you’ll ever stay, and has a great view.

Ever wanted to stay in a Tiny Home? There are many in Newfoundland where you can do just that, and take in the beautiful Nature that Newfoundland has to offer. This cozy spot in Port Rexton offers an ocean view, plenty of outdoor space, and off-grid features like solar power.

Another popular activity in Newfoundland is camping! Those who like a change of scenery may travel to different camping areas staying in tents, travel trailers, or motorhomes. You can get the authentic experience when you visit, without having to tow along a trailer, by staying in one like this!

Feeling adventurous? Love the outdoors? Maybe this Teepee on the beach is for you! Located in Bauline East on the Avalon Peninsula, with this camping experience you’ll enjoy time in a colorful area where residents love to fish, cut their own wood, and grow food.

Last but not least on our list of unique places to stay is an oceanfront cottage in beautiful Gros Morne National Park. Located near local restaurants, shops, hiking trails, and entertainment, you’ll get spectacular views of nature, while enjoying a stunning accommodation while inside.
